    I'd rather meet up with console fanboys they're at least civilized compared to the PC Fanboys. Excluding the Nintendo Dreamers, naturally.

    I met Kyle from [H] at an AMD phenom launch event in Tahoe in a bar, and this is when we were at our height of fighting each other online.

    I had a great time! Sure we had different opinions, but we had so much more in common than we did different. I mean we were both hardcore in to cool gaming hardware and gaming, and that right there is a pretty strong common ground to work off of. Plus he was an old timer like me who remembered playing with DOS and making special configs to get games to work. Sure we disagree on IHVs, but we both love gaming and the gaming hardware community in our own ways plus he's a dad too so we had the family thing in common.

    I really enjoyed getting drunk with him, it was one of my very rare getting drunk times in the last few decades and it was a total blast. My first launch event and finally getting to meet all my pals who I only knew from online contact, good times!

    The people you argue with over hardware online you'd probably get along with in real life, unless you're a fanboy asshat in which case you're hopeless so you should just avoid contact with people please. :)

    It would be nice if LS/JHH had a friendly meeting on GDC to show how fighting is ridiculous.

    That's just.. dreadful. AMD fans don't deserve to be murdered. They should be helped with a compassionate but firm hand.

    This is terrible. It also looks like these two knew each other and the nvidia vs. amd debacle was probably the tip of the iceberg.
    That or the guy doing the killing is just sick from the head. Considering he's a nvidia fan it makes some sense.

    Pfft.. figured you'd love to mingle with Xbox Shills.



    This thread is totally out of place, though.
